We are happy to announce that Ancestry.com has found a solution to enable patrons at the Family History Library and Family History Centers to login to Ancestry using their personal accounts. We have been coordinating this deployment closely with representatives from the Family and Church History Department, the Family History Library, and administrative representatives of the Family History Centers.

What we have done...
  • We have created a new domain called www.ancestryinstitution.com for the Family History Library and the Family History Centers to use to get access to the collections available to them by contract.
  • With this new domain name, patrons at the FHL and local FHCs can login to their own personal accounts using www.ancestry.com just like they would from home.

    Thank you,
    Suzanne Russo Adams, AG
    Professional Services Desk Manager
    Ancestry.com, part of The Generations Network
